SWTOR: That’s no gay planet. It’s just a bunch of unimaginative journalists

Fraser Brown bemoans the sensationalist and reactionary reporting on Star Wars: The Old Republic’s latest expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel. “When BioWare announced the addition of same sex relationships to its latest Star Wars: The Old Republic expansion, Rise of the Hutt Cartel, it was as if the deity of shoddy journalism himself had bestowed a great gift upon his insipid minions. Hang on a moment, they squawked, this all takes place on one planet? It must be a gay planet! And lo did they take that sensationalist premise and run with it. Thats how Makeb, the world featured in the expansion, became a gay planet. Once again, the gaming press were making news, not reporting it, because, frankly, video game news can be boring, but tastelessness and homophobia are hot topics, and damn do they get hits.”
